Planting trees and Enabling Women

Posted on March 05, 2015 by Cocoa Care

Isa and Bahari would like thank you Rick for caring enough to help them one a path toward sustainability

Isa routinely helps her husband Dalle to manage their family cocoa farm.  With you support, Isa now has the necessary tools to make her work in the farm easier and more effective.

Cocoa Care Advisor Noel gives Isa her much needed tool pack.

Your general sponsorship fund was used to provide farmer Bahari with 50 new top grafted cocoa seedlings including the nutrients necessary to get these trees into production over the next two years.

Meet The Recipients Of Your Support

Posted on February 06, 2015 by Cocoa Care

We are pleased to introduce you to Isa who will be receiving the tool pack you have sponsored. Isa is the wife of farmer Dalle and mother daughter Nengsi and son Suriadi. M. Rifal.

In addition to managing the family home, Isa is very active in their 1.5 ha cocoa farm particularly with farm sanitation, harvesting and bean drying. This pack will significantly help Isa to perform her role in a safer and more time effective manner allowing her to spend more time at home with her family.

As a part of your sponsorship, we will also be planting 50 superior quality, top grafted seedlings along with 12 months supply of fertilizer mix to Farmer Bahari. 

An increasingly big problem for cocoa farmers in Sulawesi is old, non productive or dead cocoa trees. By helping cocoa farmers like Bahari to replace some of those trees they have lost will help them to increase their farm incomes and give their children a much brighter future.

Bahari already know how to properly manage his farm in a sustainable way as he both have received essential training in good agricultural practices as a part of another sponsorship program.

Thank You!

Thank you for sponsoring a womans tool pack and for choosing a general sponsorship pack! 

One lucky lady living and working in the cocoa farms will receive a tool pack which is essential for her to perform her duties on the farm in a productive and safe way. 

In Indonesia, cocoa farming is a family business and the role of the woman is critical. Women are very active in cocoa farms particularly at harvest time when they will cut the pods from the tree, remove the beans and then dry and pack them for sale. 

Over the coming weeks, we will assess the farming families waiting for sponsorship and determine the best way to utilize your general sponsorship.

We will post photos and updates for you via this blog page so please check back soon.
